Product Description

Review

"This excellent selection of key passages from the voluminous writings of Wittgenstein for the first time allows him to be read systematically and continuously. I am sure it will be invaluable in the classroom and give much pleasure and enlightenment to the general reader." Rom Harr é , University of Oxford and Georgetown University Anthony Kenny and Blackwell′s have done it again. With an extended preface and an added chapter on the ′New Wittgensteinians′, especially for undergraduate syllabi that aim to cover the breadth of Wittgenstein′s philosophical concerns, this new edition of Kenny′s astute selections is required reading. Richard Kortum, East Tennessee State University

From the Back Cover

This popular collection of Wittgenstein’s key writings represents the breadth and complexity of the philosopher’s work. It follows the evolution of Wittgenstein’s philosophical thought from the Tractatus Logico–Philosophicus through the Blue and Brown Books to his later work in the Philosophical Investigations . The excerpts are arranged by topic and introduce readers to all the central concerns of Wittgenstein’s philosophy, including meaning and understanding, intentionality, rule following, private language, necessity, scepticism and certainty. For the second edition, a new chapter on ‘Sense, Nonsense and Philosophy’ has been added incorporating material relevant to recent debates about Wittgenstein. In particular, this chapter includes key passages which have proved central to interpretations of Wittgenstein by the so–called ‘New Wittgensteinians’.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wittgenstein Reader 17 April 2009
Format:Paperback
An excellent book providing relevant extracts, organised by theme, from the whole of Ludwig Wittgensteins philosophical works. A good set of texts to introduce you to his genius, and excellent for any student (or enthusiast) studying philosophy or logic.
